The Extraterrestrial Highway (Hwy 375) runs through teeny tiny town called Rachel which is about 150 miles north of Las Vegas. This particular area of Highway 375, is most famous for UFO sightings and nearby Area 51, US Air Force test facility. As you’re reading this you’re probably hearing the X-Files theme tune in your head and rightly so!
The highway itself is litterally in the middle of nowhere, but is worth a look if you’re hoping to spot a UFO or experience a close encounter. The Exterterrestrial Highway is also fastest connection between Yosemite National Park in the west and Zion National Park and Grand Canyon in the east.
